AQA 4512/CB1 Controlled Assessment – App Inventor Task
This in-school cpd course (for teachers only!) will teach you how to use App Inventor and how to write the AQA 4512 CB1 controlled assessment using App Inventor, this is the new 2017 mobile scenario featuring a ball, targets, two paddles and a drain.
This is not just giving you a possible solution to the task, on this one day course you will learn how to approach the task like a programmer, and be guided through each section as you work through the design and code a completed solution.
Participants will gain the skills needed to think like a programmer and to see how to write a complex task easily. At the end of the day you will understand the software development techniques teachers need to teach in the classroom prior to pupils starting the controlled assessment.
This course is ideal for teachers who have no knowledge of App Inventor, or those who are struggling to understand how to design and write the controlled assessment.
At the end of this one day course, you will have a working solution to the controlled assessment, you will understand how it was put together and how it all works. What is more important is that you will understand the skills your students need to complete the assessment and you will know how to teach students to approach designing and writing larger projects like the controlled assessment.
Obviously you cannot share this solution with pupils or teach them how to write it, but having written it yourself from scratch (with the tutors guidance) you will feel more confident when choosing how to guide students towards the skills needed to gain good grades with this assessment.
The course is delivered by David Batty, who has 26 years of classroom experience teaching computer science, and has been a programmer for 35 years.
